Margaret Kollmer (South Africa)
Biography of Margaret Kollmer
Have been writing ever since I discovered the fascination of words. Most of what I write falls into the poetry genre - perhaps mostly in humorous vein. I love satire but have to tame my spirit or I'd get shot, banished to a strange island or maybe even be scowled at.

He stood in the pathway
of the promise of dawn
and shrugged at the
warning bells of time.
He dwelt in the shiver
of an autumn without hope
and wept -
so many hills to climb.
